Creative Forced-Perspective Photos

 

 

 

 

 

 

Remember those old monster movies, the kind with giant creatures chasing after people, destroying objects wherever they go? Some of them can fit in the palm of your hand with ease. Forced perspective photography is used make us, the viewers believe that certain objects are smaller or larger than they really are. It's the manipulation of the human visual perception; some call it optical illusions.

Taking a forced perspective photo is not difficult and doesn't require any special skills. All you need to have is creativity, a camera, a willing accomplice, the perfect setting and timing, the patience to choreograph your trick and mostly, imagination. As you can see in the following examples, you can try forced-perspective photography while travelling, at your backyard or at home. In some cases, it's just being in the right place in the right time.

Hidden secrets behind some logos...

This famous logo represents the lovely smile brought to the customer's face. It is extremely clean and simple but this arrow might not look like more than a smile to you. However, if you pay a closer attention to it, you will know the concept behind…it says that amazon.com has everything from a to z.

This is probably one of the best known logos with a hidden meaning. If you look closely, you'll see an arrow that's formed by the letters E and x. This arrow symbolizes speed and precision, two major selling points of this company.

B and R are two abbreviated letters of Baskin Robbins an ice cream company which are known over 30 countries in the world . The old logo of Baskin Robbins had the number 31 with an arc above it. The new logo took this idea to the next level. The pink parts of the BR still form the number 31, a reference to the 31 flavors, 31 kinds of ice cream sold per month

NBC media Corporation holds the most famous logo including a peacock. The peacock has 6 different tail feathers, referring to the six divisions at the time that this logo was created. The peacock's head is flipped to the right to suggest it was looking forward, not back

Before merging with Delta, Northwest's logo was one of the best in the industry. The N and W within the circle are fairly obvious, but did you know the circle also serves as a compass? And guess which direction the arrow in the upper-left-hand corner (or the beginning of the w) is pointing

Named the world's most famous and prestigious cycling race, bike-lovers and non-cyclists alike are familiar with the event's emblem. After careful examination, you'll notice an image of a person riding a bicycle; the yellow circle is the front wheel and the r is the body

Sony Vaio is a well known brand of laptops. But did you know that the name Vaio logo also had a hidden meaning? Well, the first two letters represent the basic analogue signal. The last two letters look like a 1 and 0, representing the digital signal

Unilever is one of the biggest producers of food, beverages, cleaning agents and personal care products. They produce a huge amount of different products and they wanted to reflect this in their logo. Each part of the logo has a meaning. For example: the heart represents love, care and health -  feeling good, a bird is a symbol of freedom. Relief from daily chores – getting more out of life

At first, this logo might not make much sense. But if you look closely, you'll see the number 1 in the negative space between the F and the red stripes.

At first glance, this logo looks like a map of Africa, but if you take a closer look, you will see two people facing each other
